Sunshine & Stripes

UncategorizedAnna Keller3 Comments

You see, I have a bit of a problem.lonneke7lonneke14 School is back in full swing.  This morning I had my very first exam since February and my legs are aching from the start of Fall soccer season.  And yet, I can't seem to focus.  I've been spending my time the way that I want to: reading Vogue, scrolling through endless photos of New York Fashion Week, and making sure that I'm all caught up on the newest episode of The Rachel Zoe Project.  I know that I should be reading an article about Chilean coal production right now, but I can't.  I just cannot bring myself to do it.  I seem to have lost all motivation towards procuring an acceptable GPA and am instead spending too much time and money on other things.

These pictures are a perfect example of where my head is.  The sun's rays casting longs shadows across the sand, perfect and comfortable stripes keeping her warm against the coming chill of dusk.  I so want to see natural light right now, instead of being stuck in a windowless room with a concrete floor (No, this isn't prison.  It's just my work-study job.).

So it's a constant struggle.  It's beautiful outside but I am stuck very much inside, doing work.  I am interested a world far beyond math and science, but my busy schedule doesn't allow me to explore it.  It's a balancing act, but I'm not sure how much I like it.

What kind of circus act is going on for you?
